The breaching of the Spanish hold on Holland let loose one of the most fertile floods of artistic activity in European history. This was the age of Frans Hals and Rembrandt, of Vermeer, De Hooch, Jan Steen, Ruisdael, and a host of other artists, when nothing was too slight, nothing too ignoble to be painted. By the diversity of their portraits and interiors, their landscapes, seascapes, and still lifes, and their genre paintings, these Dutch masters of realism have bequeathed to us almost every detail of their times. This admirable study of the painting, sculpture, and architecture of two centuries is the work of three of the greatest authorities on Dutch art. If they have devoted four-fifths of their text to Dutch painting in the seventeenth century, such emphasis in no way disparages the magnificent churches, civic buildings, and stately homes of that period nor the painting of the next: it merely testifies to the unique richness of a superb era.
